I actually had the circular element made on Monday this week but I couldn't decide how to finish the card. I knew that plonking it on a white card base wouldn't cut it :)
The circular element was made by smooshing watercolor paper into several green and brown distress inks. The brown splodges are copper alcohol ink which I dabbed on the panel. I then white embossed the leaves to form an open wreath and stamped the sentiment. I really like how one of the leaves is poking through the "C" in Christmas. Some bunches of berries, aka homemade enamel dots, finished this panel.
The cardbase was sponged with Antique Linen ink over a Memory Box stencil, then the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo ink. The inner panel was stamped with Hardwood then sponged and a strip of the green watercolor panel was also added.
Thanks for visiting.
